Anything that goes into our bodies will trigger some sort of reaction. This is especially true for pharmaceuticals, legal or otherwise.
For some reason which I would love to find out before I die, something in our brains fixates on the feelings associated with childhood and the epitome and ultimate symbolism of that in it's most basic form is wearing diapers.
I'm bipolar and I used to take various medications for it. It's something I needed to take at that point in my life to survive and fortunately I'm no longer as negatively affected by it anymore.
From what I gather from other people affected by a mood disorder is their main complaint is they feel different in the sense that they have lost touch with who they are and the associated disruption of feelings and thought as a result of taking medication.
Being a DL is part of who I am, as much as my favourite food or movie or song is a part of me and I found being on medication altered the usual instant gratification I get from doing these favourite things. I found that during the two years I took medication I found my binges and purges of buying diapers were almost parallel to each other in the sense that as soon as I got diapers I was already thinking about getting rid of them. The binges were very shallow, and the purges were very profound. I still got satisfaction from them, but the satisfaction was so short lived that it didn't make sense buying diapers and wearing one or two and then throwing the rest out. I wish I wore more often back then as I was trying to figure out who I was and where I belonged in the world, and I still hadn't accepted myself for being DL. I don't have any regret about taking medication, it saved my life. Perhaps I may have accepted myself sooner and indulged more if I didn't.
I also fit into Pull-Ups back then...sigh.
Has anybody taken any medication, or is currently on medication specifically mood altering/stabilising that changed their perspectives and feelings about wearing diapers and acting childish? Perhaps any medication in general?
The reason why I ask is that people who are sick try to cure themselves, it's part of how we are wired as humans. Being mentally sick is very difficult to cure on your own, and really the only way to do that is to go into the mental health field. I took a few courses on Psych in University and would someday love to finish my degree. I think finding out what makes ABDLs ABDLs is important to a lot, if not most, of people here too and I would love to get some responses on the subject.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
